Like every other, living creature, snakes also feel thirsty and quench their thirst with water. However, witnessing a snake drinking water is uncommon.

Nevertheless, in the age of the internet, videos and pictures of such uncommon events go viral on social media. People, who have been lucky enough to witness such events, share those on social media and make those accessible publicly.
